(Didn't really want to start an new thread but had no idea where to post it)

Does this complex extend all the way from King to Adelaide?

It's too bad they weren't able to utilize the entire lot. My only concern is that the back side (north facing) will be one big, blank wall. Won't matter so much once the other lots get built up but that could be some time.

Why do they need federal cash?
Shouldn't the condo building pay for the thing?
But, I get the joke: feds give money to Toronto! For a festival -- one that's not even in Montreal!!! --- good one!

No way...they will get money from Daniels for condo development rights...but not that much...this project needs $196 million...$122 million for construction...%50 million endowement, and $20 million is operating expenses. It's a major project.

TIFF is holding out for a federal gift of cash...something like $25 million I think. Better hope they hand it out soon...or kiss it goodbye.

Toronto will get money from the Martin government when pigs fly. I guess the festival will have to live without this new centre, but it seems to have done fine without it to this point.

And Queen's Park has already ponied up their $25 million...feds will probably follow suit...the MP already went out and already said it was going to happen.

Of course the timing is also good for it now as well. TIFF is also just a good investment...It's tops in the world in it's field, and has global pull and recognition...a feather in anybody's cap...most would want to be affiliated with being a part of, or sponsering it....everybody, and mostly governments want to be seen going with a winner.

But surely our Liberal pals would prefer to pump money into Montreal's festival, so they can surpass Toronto's. After all, Toronto's not allowed to have anything better than Montreal.
